Elon Musk is a Burner, He Likes In 'n Out...

Illustration for article titled Elon Musk is a Burner, He Likes In n Out...

... and he's a pretty nice guy. My neck almost snapped with the double-take I did when I saw him leaning over and checking his phone on the way home from Burning Man. I was too ridiculously star struck to come up with anything intelligent to say, so this is how it went.


I giddily said to my friend "Holy shit that's Elon Musk!"

"Who? I don't know who that is."

"Jesus, he's one of the most visionary people on Earth! Get your phone ready!"
"Excuse me, do you mind if I bother you for a second?"



"You're Mr. Musk, right? Do you mind if I get a picture with you?"

"Yes, sure." ... and he smiled

snap, snap, snap ...

"Thanks a lot. And I love your cars!"

Probably the most inane words to ever come out of my mouth, but hey I got a photo op with Elon. If I'd taken a few moments to compose myself I'd have chatted him up about his Burning Man experience or had something substantive to say about Tesla. Oh well.
